Be Responsible For Your Furry Friends!

By: City of Bondurant
Date Published: Monday, April 9, 2018

If Animal Control is called regarding your pet or to pick up your stray pet, an invoice with a minimum charge of $90 will be sent to the owner for each offense. Be aware that this charge is in addition to any charges you may have to pay to the Animal Rescue League to retrieve your pet. Please refrain from allowing your pets to run loose around town to avoid possible injuries and/or having Animal Control pick up your pet.

Animal Control charges will be assessed for any instances where Polk County Animal Control is called to a residence: to check on an animal’s welfare, regarding an ongoing barking complaint, animal running loose, or any other reason regarding your pet.

The City would like to remind pet owners that all dogs must be on a leash, incessant barking is not allowed and owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. Bondurant Municipal Code, Chapter 55, prohibits an owner from allowing their animal to run at large within the corporate limits of the City.  This chapter also provides that anyone who does not clean up their pet’s messes may be issued a civil citation for up to $750 for the first offense and up to $1,000 for each subsequent offense.
